Islamabad, July 23 (ANI): Pakistan Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar has said there is no personal vendetta in the Supreme Court's decision to summon the former President General Pervez Musharraf.

Talking to media persons in Gujrat, Mukhtar said the government has already clarified that it has nothing to do with the case against Musharraf, and that it would not become a party in it.

The Supreme Court has summoned Musharraf to explain the legality of imposing emergency in the country on November 3, 2007.

The apex court has asked him to appear before it on July 29 to explain his position.

When enquired about Ajmal Amir Kasab's, the lone surviving Mumbai gunman, confession, he said: "Pakistan has nothing to do with this crime."

Kasab had pleaded guilty and asked a Mumbai court to award him death penalty.

He also told the court that he was under no pressure to confess.

"I was neither tortured nor put under any pressure," said Kasab. (ANI)
